I offer gardening consultation sessions to suit both yourself and your garden. Whether you'd like to refresh the layout of your garden, take action to increase wildlife or garden health or if you'd like to refine your vegetable growing techniques, get in touch to find out how I can help you through a one to one session.
Examples of themed gardening consultations are described below, but each session will be tailored to your specific requirements.
Wildlife Gardening Consultation
Learning to nurture a garden filled with wildlife
During a wildlife gardening consultation, I work closely with you to find methods that work both for your local wildlife networks, but also for you and your particular style of gardening. With a background in ecology and over ten years experience as a natural gardener, creating gardens for wildlife, I can advise on specific measures that can be taken in your garden to make it a haven for local wildlife. I also understand that different people's interpretations of the term 'wildlife garden' is hugely variable, with some preferring well kept beds and borders, filled with wildlife friendly plants and neat habitat options, while others are happier letting nature take the lead and delight in a wilder, less controlled style. If need be, I'll help you tease out what your style is and together, we'll work out a plan that is just right for you.
Vegetable Gardening Consultation
Organic veg, expertly grown
Growing organic vegetables is where I began and it remains my favourite thing to do in the garden. Whether you want help getting started with growing vegetables, or whether you would like support to improve your technique, these one to one gardening consultations are a great way to get tailored support for the vegetables you want to grow, in the space you have available. I can help with planning the vegetable year and with organic and regenerative techniques for propagation, planting out, plant health, water and weed management and with making excellent compost. I am available for one off sessions and can also be booked for regular slots throughout the year.
Organic Gardening Consultations
Best practice organic health
This service is often one that clients come back to throughout the year as we work together to keep plants in great health. Through these sessions, I pass on expert advice gained through many years working as an RHS qualified organic gardener. Depending on your range of plants, we can go through the use of skillful pruning, organic and sustainable methods for soil and water management and how to diagnose, manage and avoid common pest and disease problems. Available as one-off sessions, but most people find it helpful to have at least one session per season so we can work through the full range of seasonal tasks.
